Yes to the blood-loss, not quite to the teeth/mouth thingies. :D It's like a one-tentacled sky jellyfish, and the tendril is covered with cnidocytes - only instead of injecting venom, they are microscopic straws. The holes they leave behind are small enough too clot very quickly, too small to be seen individually with the naked eye, and are easily mistaken for a rash or a rope burn. :D
I assume you mean to the "tunnel appears, sucks the victim in, and then the victim is digested" part of my multiple tangents...
...I hadn't thought about that, actually. 0_0 I don't know.
Someting to think about.
Also a question on how the flock travels - would they just take the places of existing pictures in a gallery, returning the originals once they leave, by the same means that the open up portals. Also when they recruit a new portrait does it leave the frame where it once resided empty, or does the whole picture frame disappear. It would make sense to me that only the portrait moves and that they use the frames as a doorway. also it would tie in with if they only reproduced by recruiting ones with similar motifs.
If you missed that you were getting bug-bitten by butterflies, you should at least be able to feel the grubs burrowing through your body.
Ah, cool. Lovely.
brb - trying not to imagine bugs crawling under my skin.
